Welcome from the Chair of Governors

Ruth website

Welcome to the Ashton St Peter’s Church of England VA Primary School website.

We hope that it gives you an insight into our happy school and a snapshot of the facilities and activities that we offer.

The Governing Body is made up of representatives from the St Albans Diocese, the Ashton Foundation, Parents, Staff and the Local Authority. Its main responsibilities are to determine the aims and overall running of the school, with a view to promoting high standards of educational attainment. This is best achieved as a partnership between the children, parents/carers and the entire school team.

The Christian ethos underpins the decisions that we make and the attitudes that we model. Within our school community, everyone is encouraged to support and motivate those around them.

The Governing Body is actively involved in the strategic development and financial management of the school, as required by law. However, we also see ourselves as mentors and friends to the school community. Governors often visit the school to hear children read, or assist in the classroom or with extra-curricular activities. We are also delighted to be able to attend performances and displays put on by the children.

I am immensely proud of this school and the fantastic things that are achieved by those who belong to it. I look forward to meeting you at one of our many school events, and wish your child every happiness within the school.
